The party of the year coming up!
The much-anticipated, annual LA tradition of Brazilian Carnaval (now in its 9th year, formerly aboard the Queen Mary) erupts on Saturday, February 21, 2009 at the newly renovated HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM (a LIVENATION venue) and will inaugurate the ballroom as its largest public celebration since reopening in November with Jay Z. Boasting the title of largest Carnaval on the West Coast, Brazilian Nites Carnaval has sold out with a crowd of 3000+ guests every year for the past nine years (in a 20 plus year history of carnavals in Los Angeles). This celebratory spectacle and authentic demonstration of Carnaval dance, costuming, parading, music, drink and food occurs on the same day as Brazil's own Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro and Bahia. At the heart of the 2009 celebration is renowned recording artist Katia Moraes and Nation Beat, with top-notch musicians performing sizzling Carnaval beats. The party starts at 8:00 p.m. with LIVE music by Katia Moraes & Pure Samba with Marchinhas, Sambas, AxÈ music of Bahia and NYC's Nation Beat in their LA debut bringing the Carnaval of Pernambuco, Recife with Frevo and Maractu rhythms, Flavio's Unidos da California Samba School, the stunning Samba Dancers from Tropidanza, Viver Brasil with Maracatu choreographies, Mestre Amèn & Capeira Batuque, DJ Seduce and DJ Chris Brazil, and M.C.s Lady Di ("the Samba Queen") and Bakari!
The newly renovated Hollywood Palladium, in the heart of Hollywood!
